Born in Dakar, Senegal in 1958, Ghassan Salhab moved to Beirut in 1970, and to Paris in 1975. Since then, he has divided his time between Beirut and Paris. Among his works are two feature length films, Terra incognita (2002) which was selected for the category “Un Certain regard” at Cannes, and Beyrouth fantôme (1998). He is a writer, contributing to Adab, an Arabic review of art and literature, and also a videomaker. His short works include videos such as De la séduction (with Nesrine Khodr) and Baalbeck (with Mohamed Souei and Akram Zaatari, 2002).
